continues to play a dominant role in Columbia County's economy, thanks in
part to a multi-skilled, productive work force, and also to its location
straddling Interstate 80, thereby giving businesses in the area ready
access to 80% of the U.S. and Canadian markets.
Some of the region’s largest manufacturers are located here
including Magee-Rieter Automotive Systems, Wise Foods, Kawneer, and David
J. Thompson Mailing Corporation. With
its many programs, Bloomsburg University provides first-class management
and technology graduates. Two
major communities serve as centers of business, industry, and government
in Columbia County – Berwick and Bloomsburg, with U.S. Route 11
traveling through both.
